This is my first skirt but third piece. This is based on a pattern of my own design, that uses different amounts of flare on both sides of the seams to give a godet-like appearance without the skirt actually using the triangular inserts that make a true godet skirt. I had some difficulties with the fabric forming puckers along the seam – despite my best efforts, a few puckers remain. The skirt is light but moves well. What you can’t see in the photo is how marvelous the skirt is to touch.
Triacetate fabric, slightly different color for both the exterior and the lining. The second color was used to make the belt. The belt includes facing. Additional elements include a zipper and a “snag” closure for the belt.
